Important Note:... Convex mirrors are becoming more common and have been standard on most new cars and vans since 2005 and it has now become standard across the market.
Manufacturers fit 2mm ADR Compliant Convex Mirrors as part of the vehicle compliance at time of production and so, when replacing your mirrors on a vehicle manufactured after 2005 it is almost certain the mirrors on both sides will be Convex Mirrors.
Modifying a vehicles design from that at manufacture maybe a breach to ADR and potentially render the vehicle un-roadworthy due to being non-compliant. (All vehicles must meet the Field Of Vision test set out in the ADR)

There is a Difference..! (between Motor Vehicle & Household Mirrors).
Household Mirror Glass is not designed to stand up to the extreme weather conditions in today's environment. Mirrors4cars import only the highest quality Automotive Wing Mirror Glass manufactured from materials that do not react to extreme or prolonged heat and sunlight. typically household mirrors are manufactured by polishing and cleaning, and then coated. Glass mirrors are most often coated with silver or aluminium, implemented by a series of coatings:
- Tin(II) chloride
- Chemical activator
The tin(II) chloride is applied because silver will not bond with the glass. The activator causes the tin/silver to harden. Copper is added for long-term durability. The paint protects the coating on the back of the mirror from scratches and other accidental damage. In this process the Copper may react under extreme weather conditions and the mirror surface will fail. This process is designed for internal use specifically.
Mirrors4Cars use Automotive Mirror Glass, an aluminium glass mirror which is made of a flat float glass or a moulded convex glass manufactured using vacuum coating, i.e. aluminium powder is evaporated (or "sputtered") onto the exposed surface of the glass in a vacuum chamber and then coated with two or more layers of waterproof protective paint designed to manage extreme weather conditions.
